Hitmonlee is a Kicking Pokémon. It is brown in color with tape wrapped around its legs and forearms. (The Manga depicts these parts as being springs which it can use to lengthen its kicks)
Hitmonlee can have one of two abilities, Limber or Reckless. Limber is an ability that will prevent Hitmonlee from becoming paralyzed while Reckless increases the attack power of moves with recoil damage. Hitmonlee is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Mega Kick by leveling up. Hitmonlee is a very distinguished kicker.
